Implementation and Customization:-

Implementaion:-
Now To add One of these amazing and unique blockquotes to your blogs, do the following,
  1. Go to Blogger > Layout > Edit HTML
  2. Backup your template
  3. Search for .post blockquote and delete it along with all its occurrences. In most templates the codes look like this,
    .post-body blockquote { line-height:1.3em; }
    OR
    .post blockquote{ bla bla bla}
    If you couldn’t find such code then it is OK.
  4. Now search for ]]></b:skin> and just above ]]></b:skin> , paste the code for one of your favourite blockquotes. I am giving a sample code below
.post blockquote {
margin : 0 20px;
padding: 60px 30px 40px 20px;
background : #F1F8FE url(Paste Image Link here) no-repeat 350px 5px;
font: normal .9em "comic sans ms", Courier,"Times New Roman", Times, serif;
color : #000;
border: 8px dotted #DAB547;
}
.post blockquote p {
margin: 0;
padding-top:10px;
}
Customization:-
Important areas to be customized are bolded. Where,
  • padding: It refers to the distance of the text from blockquote borders. Which goes in this order –> Top Right Bottom Left
  • background :- This includes Blockquote background color and image used in it. The six digit value is the background color and image link is inserted in place of bolded text in this part-> url(Paste Image Link here)
  • font :- It includes font style, size and type respectively. Match the colours with the code above for reference.
  • color :- This refers to text colour. You can use a different font colour using our color chart
  • border :- This refers to border width, style and colour respectively.
  • All other blockquotes can be customized in similar way.
     5.      After customizing finally save your template and preview it to see the interesting new change.
Note:- For Blockquotes with inverted commas, canopy style and the Monkey Man, there is a little more coding required. Read below
Guide:- For above mentioned blockquotes you need to add some extra tags inside blogger editor as explained below,
Now Whenever you have written a Quote inside the compose mode of Blogger Editor simply switch to the HTML mode and add two tags i.e <div> and </div> between the blockquote tags as demonstrated below,
<blockquote><div>Your Quote Will Be Here</div></blockquote>

Play With Each Blockquote Code!

margin : 0 20px;
padding: 60px 30px 40px 20px;
